    Saudade by Arsenal, by definition.


    Saudade
    (European Portuguese: [sɐwˈšašɨ], Brazilian Portuguese: [sawˈdadi] or [sawˈdadʒi], Galician: [sawˈšaše]; plural saudades)[1]
    Saudade is a Portuguese and Galician word that has no direct translation in English. It describes a deep emotional state of nostalgic or deeply melancholic longing for an absent something or someone that one loves. Moreover, it often carries a repressed knowledge that the object of longing will never return.[2] A stronger form of saudade may be felt towards people and things whose whereabouts are unknown, such as a lost lover, or a family member who has gone missing.

    Good choice sir. I'd also say Shine a Light. Melancholy and uplifting in equal measure. Gets me every time.

    I posted this on a different thread but it doesn't get much more melancholic than low mans lyric by Metallica. It's a truly beautiful song to boot.

    All the below hit really close to the nerve for me...

    Modest Mouse - Bankrupt on Selling
    The Smiths - I Know It's Over
    Pavement - We Dance
    Wilco - Reservations/How to Fight Loneliness

    I'd have to give the number one spot to New Grass by Talk Talk though - one of the most beautiful/devastating songs I've ever heard.

    Gloomy Sunday - Billie Holiday a.k.a. the Hungarian Suicide Song
    That song is dangerous.


    Song of Suicide

    In 1935 Lazzlo Javor, a Hungarian poet, wrote a song called Gloomy Sunday. This was later put to music by Rezsoe Seres and the record became a hit.

    Lazzlo Javor's former girlfriend for whom the song had been written, committed suicide shortly after the record's release. Her suicide note said, 'Gloomy Sunday'. A short while later a Hungarian government official shot himself. He was found slumped over a copy of the lyrics of Gloomy Sunday. Next a girl tried to poison herself. When she was found, Gloomy Sunday was still playing on the gramophone in the room. In a Budapest restaurant a young man shot himself - the band had just played Gloomy Sunday.

    The Hungarian government banned all public performances of the song, for the situation was fast getting out of hand. In Britain, where other suicides had been reported, the BBC banned the song. Similar suicides were reported in America but the government decided not to ban it in the USA.

    In all, there were some 200 suicides around the world that were said to be connected with Gloomy Sunday. In 1968 a Hungarian jumped to his death from the eighth floor of a building. It was Rezsoe Seres, who had never been able to write another hit after Gloomy Sunday.

    I Remember Me by Silver Jews

    He almost walked into a wall
    Oh, man, she was a sight to see
    And at the party down the hall
    He said, "you are the highest apple in the tree"

    Out the window, in the harbor he saw a little ship
    The moon was worn just slightly on the right
    And they slow danced so the needle wouldn't skip
    Until the room was filled with light

    And I remember you
    And I remember me
    The sunshine walking inside you
    And the man you could see in me

    So I remember me
    And I remember you
    So many beautiful days in a row now
    And the nights were perfect, too

    Hand in hand down a waterslide in Chattanooga
    They did not hide from love, you see
    A winter's plane flight to Aruba
    Where he threw a boombox into the sea

    One day they were cutting flowers for something to do
    On the bank of the road 'neath the cotton woods
    And he turned to her to ask if she'd marry him
    When a runaway truck hit him where he stood

    So I remember you
    And I remember you
    And I remember you

    And I remember me
    And I remember me
    A blackhawk nailed to the sky
    And the tape hiss from the trees

    Everybody said she needed to move on
    That he was all but lost, so deep was his coma
    When he finally came to the girl he loved was long gone
    She'd married a banker and gone to Oklahoma

    He bought a little land with the money from the settlement
    And even bought the truck that had hit him that day
    He touched the part where the metal was bent
    And if you were there you wouldn't hear him say

    I remember her
    And I remember him
    I remember them
    I remember then
    I'm just remembering
    I'm just remembering
    Just remembering
    I'm just remembering
